The 2006 Hawaii International Film Festival is going full steam ahead as you read this. The opening night movie at the Hawaii Theatre was Brad Pitt’s latest, Babel. The theater was filled with celebs, film fans and corporate sponsors alike including Jack Bender, Moon Yun Choi, Titus Chong, Gerard Elmore, Michael Emerson, Daryl Gilmore, Brian Keaulana, Daniel Dae Kim, Lew Lappert, Angie Laprete, Scott Francis Russell and Michelle Van Hessen. Sitting among them, for a moment I was transported back to Hollywood. The film festivities continue through the weekend, so go check out some movies. Need more info? Log on to www.hiff.org and reserve your tickets ...

I have never seen so many people on the beach. I’m talking about the recent season 3 premiere of the award-winning hit series Lost at Sunset on the Beach. The cast and producers welcomed fans on a beautiful Hawaii evening. The show is still going strong with its unique nonlinear story-telling and excellent acting. I’m proud to say I’m a big fan. Seen enjoying the festivities were Pat Bentley, Joy Kam, Serena Karnegy, Jean Simon, Mary Ann Taheny, Tiffany Thynne, Kimi Tupuola, Michael DeYcaza, Osler Go, Sean Hoban, Ryan Ozawa, Bryan Sato and Steve Tanizaki. I have a feeling this year’s episodes will be filled with revelations of the characters. Enjoy the show ...

2007 Miss East Oahu Kawena Chun is on her way to the Cannes Film Festival. A graduate of Maryknoll and University of Hawaii at Manoa, she recently performed Tahitian hula at the HIFF celebration in the Dole Cannery ballroom. The occasion followed the screening of Criminally Inept by Ryan Ishii. The mastermind behind the entertainment extravaganza is producer Nelson Quan. It was truly an all-night affair of music, food, dancing and plain ol’ good times with Kal Penn, Sherry Shaoling, Edison Erorita, Allison Ishii, Renato Fontaine, Tiffany Tudor, Dezmond Gilla, Meryle Carr, Yuri Biersach, Anne Misawa and Martin Troy. I’ll definitely do a follow up on Kawena’s adventure in France ...
